Band Development

Band Development Consultations | Rehearsals | Contest Preparation

I’ve spent my whole life in the brass band world, working with bands across all sections, including some of the finest bands in the UK. I’ve adjudicated prestigious contests at home and abroad and I’m delighted to be working with Brass Band England to deliver Player Development lectures up and down the country.

If you want to improve your band’s sound, enhance players’ practice routines and build musicality in your performances, I can certainly help.

I’m available for one-off consultation rehearsals and full-day band development sessions. We could also discuss a series of rehearsals in the run-up to a contest or concert.

Please do use the button above to get in touch.

Alongside his work as a performer, Paul was a Professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama for 30 years and has acted as the external examiner at colleges and conservatoires throughout the United Kingdom.

Paul has always maintained close links with the brass band community. He has coached and conducted some of the finest bands in the UK and adjudicated high profile contests at home and abroad.
